I'd Rather Be Sailing By Patrick Flynn

basics of sanding a battered Nordberg hull ( the victim of the previous year's neophytes). Before that I remember fashioning boats from bits of 2 by 4, some doweling and cloth and floating them in puddles in a neigbour's driveway. Related work led to ....

Antique Letterboxes
Tony Shaman

When the two young, Edwardian ladies pictured in Kathryn Hansuld Lamb's book, The Quiet Hobby, deposited a letter into a King Street, Berlin, Ontario, (now Kitchener), street letter box in 1912 they could not have imagined that the little, red mail box would some day become a sought-after collectible item. Although these particular types of street letter boxes were fastened to lamp or hydro poles, much as some are even today, their predecessors known as pillar boxes, dating from the 1850s, were stand-alone models that measured...

The History of Coca-Cola Helen Nash

The product that has given the world its best-known taste and led to a memorabilia craze was born in Atlanta, Georgia, on May 8, 1886. Dr. John Stith Pemberton, a local pharmacist, produced the syrup for Coca Cola® and carried a jug of the new product down the street to Jacobs' Pharmacy, where it was placed on sale for 5 cents a glass at the soda fountain. Carbonated water was added to produce a drink that was at once "Delicious and Refreshing," a theme that continues to echo today wherever Coca Cola is enjoyed...

Scottish Single Malts Reid Pickering

Those who collect and those who have collections thrust upon them: A journey into Scottish single malts.

I'm a beer drinker. I've been drinking it for 25 years. So…how did I end up with an incredible collection of 2000 plus bottles of rare single malt whisky? The year was 2008 and I had been managing a great spot in the heart of Toronto called the Rebel House but I was becoming restless and decided it was time for a change. The thing was, I had no idea what I should do or even what I could do. After all, I had spent the last 20 years working in the service industry and playing in rock bands. I didn’t have much experience in anything else. Then I received a phone call.

“I’m having lunch at a place you might know,” she said. “Where?” “The Feathers.” “Really?” “Yup.” My wife, Sarah, had also been in the service industry for many years but with the birth of our daughter had made a career change. She was now marketing real estate in service based businesses such as restaurants and bars. The Feathers is a popular pub on Kingston Rd in the Beaches area of Toronto.

Why Collect Radios By Alfred Zeeb

f there is a ranking of all the items that can be collected, vintage radios surely must show right at the top. What other objects will reward and serve in so many ways? Out of the vast variety of models made, there are still good sets readily available at reasonable cost, while at the other end of the scale there are select pieces which approach in rarity the most famous postage stamp. Thus, the pleasure of owning, restoring, looking at and eventually listening to a radio from yesteryear is easily within the reach of everybody.

Vintage radios are “active” collectibles. No true collector will be able to restrain his or her urge to restore, to make that “attic find” perform to its original specifications. And that opens up an almost unlimited range of possibilities. As radio technology represents the beginning of modern...
